  • Fantastic place. Loved the location to the beach just a short stroll. Sad we didn't get to meet Randy in person but he was very responsive via email for any questions we had. Loved our time in Kona!!

  • My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the big island retreat. We stayed for three nights in the paradise room (still thinking about getting the same beautiful pillows and curtains for my living room :D). Randy & Shannon provide a lot of extras for their guests (yummy welcome basket, guide books, beach stuff as boogie boards, towels, chairs, cooling boxes,...) which made our stay even more enjoyable. Especially as the next beach is in a walkable distance. We also enjoyed the outdoor cooking area. And last but not least, everything (the room, the cookin area, the community room) was very clean and smelled fresh. If we ever have the chance to come back to Big Island, we would definetly stay here again.

  • My girlfriend and I spent a week at the big island retreat and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Everything we needed was readily available to us. Having beach equipment, including beach towels, chairs, sunscreen, surf boards and boogie boards was very helpful as we were often able to just get up and grab it and head to the (website hidden) books were provided, which we took full advantage of.

    We would happily stay here again if we were to visit the big island again.

  • The Big Island Retreat was a great start to our Hawaiian vacation. We stayed four nights in the Orchid Room. The room was clean with all the amenities one might expect. The welcome basket was much appreciated and included local snacks and delicacies. The BIR is convenient to public beaches, one of which has very good snorkeling. Our host Randy was friendly and helpful. Overall, a very nice experience!

  • We stayed at the BEAUTIFUL Big Island retreat and were pleasantly suprised when we arrived with an upgrade to the Pineapple room. At no additional charge, Randy welcomed us warmly and showed us around the house and made us feel right at home. The room really had everything we could have needed and more. It was extremely clean and organized and even had a welcome basket with goodies. The property was nestled off the road into a quiet setting with lush landscaping all around. We felt very safe with our car parked there and keys to both the main door and the room. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks again to you Randy & Shannon.

  • A great location with gracious hosts! The property is beautiful and the rooms are extremely clean, updated(flat screen, new appliances, and powerful showers), and well planned. They are perfect for extended stays of a week or so on account of the fridge and mini kitchen. Randy was dedicated to making my stay comfortable and relaxing. The proximity to the Kailua center is perfect. You're directly on top of Kahaluu Beach(great snorkeling) and only minutes from shopping and restaurants. Great spot at a reasonable rate!

  • What a fantastic place Randy and Shannon have created!! beautiful house where you will feel like at home or even better :) A perfect spot to discover the area and soooo magical. By far one of the best places I have been so far. If I come back to the Big Island no doubt I will crash here again!! :)

    Response from Randy & Shannon:

    Aloha, in March we were blessed to host a wonderful guest who was a joy to have around. Natalia was adventurous and free, exploring all there was to see and do here on the Kona side of the Big Island. To share the stories of her adventures was the high light of each day. We at the Big Island wish her well in all her travels

  • We are so glad we chose the Big Island Retreat for the first few nights of our stay on Hawaii! Randy is a friendly host who went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We appreciated his big smile after a long flight from the east coast and the special touches like Kona coffee and fresh pineapple in the room. Our room was incredibly comfortable and beautifully decorated. The location was a bit difficult to determine the first time (in the dark!) but a breeze to find after that. Mahalo for a great stay.

  • Upon entering our room, we knew we had the perfect space from which to explore and enjoy paradise. Well appointed, very clean, and comfortable, every morning we delighted in hanging out in the lanai so much that sometimes we were hours late in getting going for the day. Randy and Shannon were great hosts, helping to make our vacation fun and easy. We used the outdoor kitchen to cook a great dinner and borrowed the beach equipment available for an afternoon on the sand. We'll recommend Big Island Retreat to all our friends traveling to Hawaii.

  • Very comfortable room which was made complete with a separate sitting room! Room has windows galore and make for cool evening breezes. Greenery abounds and on it, lots of geckos! It was a quiet environment until morning when we were awakened by the local bird population which we really enjoyed! Randy was very gracious, helpful, and welcoming. The outdoor bbq/cooking area is inviting and well stocked. The Big Island Retreat comes highly recommended!

About
My wife Shannon and I fell in love with the Big Island and it's Aloha spirit the first time we vacationed on the island. We knew that there was something very special about Hawaii, specifically the Big Island and after about a year we made the decision to make Kona our home. We have found that life on the Big Island is paradise and more...the weather always warm and comfortable, snorkeling and surfing just a few steps away and being able to have shops, restaurants being so close you can walk to them and the access of public transportation just up the road. Our property is very special to us and knew the very first moment we saw it that it was home. We have created a wonderful vacation rental property with 5 beautifully and newly decorated rooms with either a partial ocean view or garden view, lanai to watch stunning sunsets and a fully equipped gazebo BBQ area. We are tucked in amongst a quiet neighborhood though steps away from the beach all ones hears is the surf. We welcome you to come enjoy and see why this is the perfect place to spend your next vacation. Warm aloha, Randy & Shannon
